inaadvertant moving of fields
This suggestion is a bit hard to describe. Frequently enough in reviewing what a previous indexer has done, I need to remove some of what was keyed. As an example “123 Cinnamon St SE, Hometown, Colorado” may need to be edited to remove the specific address. Or another example might be “County of Monroe, Mississippi” needs to have “County of “ removed. In both of these examples, rather than re-key the entire entry, I have elected to just place my mouse cursor just after the first comma and highlight the beginning part of the text. And then delete the highlighted text to just “Hometown, Colorado” or “Monroe, Mississippi.” This is usually the smoothest and quickest way to make a correction.
But, I have noticed a quirk in the system which frustrates me. Sometimes when I highlight the text, I must not quite do it correctly, because the system seems to assume that I want to move highlighted text and when I release my mouse cursor, I find the first field from the top of all the fields has now dropped down to the field location where I had highlighted the original text. And my highlighted text is unchanged. So now I need to stop reviewing and select and drag the first field back up to the top of the fields and then scroll back to the field I was trying to correct.
I guess my main frustration is not understanding what functionality I am inadvertently activating to have the system think I am trying to move the first field at all. Or maybe there is a setting in my Windows 10 computer / Google Chrome browser which I should adjust to avoid this situation from occurring. Or maybe it's some left-over code which needs to be corrected. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.
